5 Wedding Tips to Help You Create an Amazing Day

Wedding tips

There’s so much pressure to get everything the way you want it so that you have a fabulous wedding day. Use these 5 wedding tips to help you create a truly amazing day.

1. Begin planning well in advance

If you find a supplier you really want to hire, speak to them as soon as you can to establish how long their waiting list is or to check that they have your date available.

If a business is really popular and is being recommended by other suppliers and venues, it’s highly likely they’ll get booked up really quickly, so get in touch with them sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

2. Wedding fayres at wedding venues can be extremely helpful

Visiting small wedding fayres held at wedding venues themselves can be really beneficial. Many of them are free to attend and these showcases will often only have recommended suppliers there too, which is a major plus point.

You are of course going to want businesses who will be reliable and care about doing a really good job at your wedding. Sometimes it can be hard to get a real insight into wedding suppliers from just their website. Meeting the business owners face to face and knowing that they’re recommended by a good venue can really help in choosing who will be the perfect fit for your big day.  It can really save time too, having a car hire company, wedding stationer, cake maker etc all under one roof.

Some wedding fayres provide free drinks and canapes, plus there is sometimes cake to sample, so it can be a lovely little trip out. You may find that some suppliers will offer small discounts when you visit the fayre too, which is always a bonus!

3. It’s your day, so do what you want to do

Your wedding day is all about you as a couple. Everything should be the way you want it to be. There is probably always going to be somebody who is unhappy with something – try not to worry about it!

Give serious thought to who you will allow to bring plus ones, as this can seriously increase the number of guests attending your wedding.

4. Allow plenty of time to get ready on the day

On my wedding day, you’ll find that time flies by very quickly indeed. Things will take longer than you think and there will always be little issues to be sorted. Allowing extra time ensures that little problems can be fixed without them becoming even more stressful.

5. Enjoy every single moment

No matter how nervous you feel, try your best to enjoy every single moment, including getting ready. To be made to feel like a million dollars and have close family and bridesmaids getting ready around you, all focused on you and your day is something to be truly relished!

Enjoy every single part of the day because it will honestly be the most magical experience. Let everyone else worry about making sure things are running smoothly and just focus on enjoying yourself.

    Thank you so much for sharing this advice Jenny! Such a shame about the wedding stationers, they must have had an insanely long waiting list! I definitely agree that making your day completely personal and all about you is the right way to go, having no children there is probably a choice I’d have made as well! Good on your for sticking to what was best for you!

    Beginning planning waaaay in advance sounds like really good advice! Love your tip about remembering the wedding day is about the couple alone by the way, it really is totally about the couple and then everything else comes afterwards 🙂

    What a lovely post 🙂 I married last year in November and we planned our wedding in the space of three months. We had a wonderful day, and the best advice I can give anybody is

    1/ Try not to stress 🙂 Seriously, I know an unheard of for most but remember there’s nothing to stress about, just dedicate yourself two tasks per day.
    2/Enjoy your preparation! You only get to do it once so embrace it.
    3/Ask for help, my mum helped so much especially with the bridesmaids outfits and coming with me to my bridal fittings.
    4/On the day, enjoy enjoy enjoy, chill and soak in everything, it’ll go by so super quickly.
    5/Smile and remember that everyone there is there to support you, they all love you.

    A great post 🙂

      Yay I’m glad you agree 🙂 That’s great that you found it to be pretty un-stressful – I think as the wedding got closer, I got a bit more stressed! x
